Happy Thanksgiving From Ethan, Robyn & Me!

By Adam Pick on November 20, 2012

On behalf of Ethan (my son) and Robyn (my wife), I wanted to wish all of the patients, caregivers, doctors, nurses, cardiac centers and medical device manufacturers, a very Happy Thanksgiving!

 

Thanksgiving Card With Leaves

 

So you know, this is my favorite holiday. I love the food — especially the turkey, the stuffing and the pumpkin pie. I love the time with our family and friends. I love the football. I love watching movies with Ethan and Robyn. Most importantly, I love the quiet time I spend reflecting on all the goodness in our lives. Each year, this website becomes a bigger part of that goodness. That said, thank you for being a part of this extraordinary community.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of our friends!!!
Adam

P.S. The picture above was taken during last Halloween. Ethan is still a “Buzz Lightyear” fanatic. This was the second consecutive year that Ethan was Buzz, Robyn was Jessie and I was Woody from the Toy Story movies. 🙂

Hi Adam, Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family! We certainly have a lot to be thankful for! I had mitral valve repair surgery in 2007 and I’m doing great! Thank you for this inspirational website! I look forward to receiving your newsletters.

Robin – and family,

thanks for all you do for is – the information you proved together with your resources makes this very unpleasant journey more bearable – knowledge always eases the journey – I still have to go through this all.

Again, bless you and your family – after all that’s all we really need.

Hi Adam, Happy Thanksgiving to you and your beautiful family. Every day I think about the road I have been down, I’m very thankful that I am here, and that the experience has made me a stronger person. These thoughts ring true even more so on Thanksgiving. I am also very thankful for you! Reading your book gave me strength before and after surgery. I still remember waking up from surgery and having excerpts from your book running through my mind. It was very comforting and your words helped me relax. After coming home when I had tough days your words were also a reminder that things would keep improving and to hang in there. Your website, blogs, and book inspire all of us and I am sure many join me in a huge THANK YOU to you!
